Spotify lost a whopping amount of $4 billion in market value after the rock icon Neil Young called out the company for allowing Joe Rogan to use its service to spread misinformation about the vaccine on his popular podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
The controversy stirred up in the first place when Rogan had discouraged young people from getting vaccinated. Rogan was also previously involved in a controversy as he had promoted the concept of taking a deworming medication to treat the virus, without providing any medical evidence supporting it.
Neil Young had urged Spotify to delete his music from the streaming service due to their association with the long-tenured UFC commentator Joe Rogan. Young was praised and criticized for that move. Previously, Trevor Noah also made a money joke about the incident.
Andrew Watt, the producer of the new Eddie Vedder’s solo album ‘Earthling’ was recently asked about his favorite song on the album. Here is what he said:
“Live, ‘Rose of Jericho’ f–king kicks ass,” exclaims the producer behind hits by Justin Bieber, Camila Cabello, 5 Seconds of Summer and Dua Lipa. “OMG, it’s the most fun song to play for me.”
Pearl Jam are rumored to finally tour North America this summer, with a European festival date already confirmed. Eddie Vedder just hinted at a Chicago performance, though we’ll have to wait and see.
